Weigh-In … No Explaining Necessary

Today’s Weight: 170.0
Loss/Gain:  + 2.0 lbs
Yes, technically I am up 2 pounds, but yesterday I was 168, so I’m pretty sure this is due to a late dinner last night and the funnel cake I shared with my family after watching fireworks.  
I am saying that to say that I’m okay with it.  We were on vacation and I maintained, until that late meal last night.  
Over the last month or so I’ve been considering taking away my Friday weigh-ins because I’ve basically been maintaining.  However, it is one of the key things in my life that helps me stay accountable, so I will not stop posting my weight.  
What I am going to stop doing is feeling the need to justify why the scale says what it is. I mean, I don’t mind sharing what went on in the week that explains the loss or gain, but mentally I’m not going to feel bad if the scale is up.  If I know what caused it and I am not going to let it continually creep up, then I don’t have to feel bad.  I just have to accept it and learn from it. 
Don’t worry, this is not to say that I’m going to keep creeping up the scale and not feel bad for gaining weight.  In fact, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and soul searching this past week about what I need to tweak to get back into weight loss mode.  I’ve had some habits start that are not the best and I am going to work on breaking those.  I look forward to good things in this area. 
Meanwhile, I’m going to close up this post and post another with a few snapshots of my week.  It’s been a fun time with the family!  🙂

    When you are at a lower weight, the scale EASILY jumps around – I gained 1.5 pounds today because I was dehydrated yesterday and then I had a beer (shoulda had water, haha). But I know I didn't eat over 4000 extra calories or gain a whole pound of fat in a day. 😀
